Hip-Hop has been behind Barack Obama since his first presidential campaign in 2008. From Jay-Z to will.i.am, artists have shown their support for the first African-American President of the United States through inspirational odes and unforgettable performances.
This week, amidst Obama's re-election, Jay-Z took over Ohio with a revamped performance of "99 Problems," and both Young Jeezy ("We Done It Again") and Mariah Carey ("Bring It On Home") released celebratory odes to the POTUS. Ne-Yo teamed up with Goo Goo Dolls' Johnny Rzeznik, Herbie Hancock, Delta Rae and Natasha Bedingfield for a motivational collaboration for the Obama campaign titled, "Forward."
In celebration of President Obama's victory, here are the top 10 hip-hop/R&B odes to our current and future president.
